Aqua Petal Cat Bed
The aqua petal cat bed comes in a 14" round and 20" round. The smaller bed is perfect for a cat or small dog, while the larger offers space for a larger pet or even a litter of kittens or puppies to snuggle up in.
These unique Cat Beds are handcrafted by women in Nepal. Using a technique called wet-felting, the only materials used in the making of these items are pure wool, natural soap, and water. Safe, non-toxic dyes are used on the Himalayan wool. The wool is not chemically cleansed, so it has a lot of lanolin in it. Lanolin is the natural oil unique to sheep's wool and it reminds cats of the scent of their mother. Lanolin oil conditions their paws and helps keep their fur healthy and shiny.
The lanolin is also anti-microbial and odor-resistant which keeps these cat beds naturally clean. They can be vacuumed or spot cleaned with a sponge. If a bed becomes very soiled, turn it inside out and wash it in a delicate cycle on a washing machine. Let air dry.
